Penthouse apartment and moved into
the 2cd floor already.
never would work for her.
Not sure why?
The Penthouse had a nice furniture
Anyway, here is her apartment now.
the storyline for this blog.
Mardi Gras costumes and masks!
"American Miniature magazine".
Samantha just moved in here
and tidied up so I could show you
what her new apartment is looking like.
Sam loves the white walls!
The tall posts were plastic
I left them white for a long time
I tried to make them a little shabby.
Hope I succeeded??
Sam got rid of the red sofa set.
It was so big and stood out like a sore thumb!
This set is much smaller and more practical
for the room.
So, there isn't any doubt in my mind
is the kitchen, living and dining area.
A problem with the pillars -
what to do with them!
This apartment has many possibilities
I like that cause I change
The kitchen is in the very back
be in the same spot.
This kitchen was white,
but I wanted a change so I painted it black.
were made in in the early 90s.
But since unpacking
the bed pillows.
at making a mask.
far right side of the room
along the wall were once gold.
I painted them white, making them a little
I made a small little pink checked pillow
and placed it to use as a cushion
for Sam's tush, just in
case she decides to sit in the chair.
The hatbox sitting on top of the chair
is one of three.
It is the same and the one sitting
on top of the black table.
These are Barbie hatboxes.
I glued white fabric to the sides
and to the tops of them.
I left a little of the pink plastic showing.
thing about them is that the lids
can come off and you can store things
The tops have little pink
bows that I made from embroidery
A 3rd one of these hatboxes
is stored under the black table.
Another little round Barbie box
sits under the bigger round box.
I also covered that box too.
used to have doors on it.
and placed them on the left side of the cabinet.
The shoe boxes hold Barbie's open toed high heels.
I never got around to decorating their tops.
lacy ruffled bed pillows that I made.
The red hat is tucked in there behind.
The pink suitcase belonged to Barbie.
It is plastic.
I cut out a small printed
flowered cotton fabric and glued
it to the plastic.
This case does not open.
The tan suitcase and the navy blue
suitcases do not open either.
These cases were bought from
eBay many years ago.
I do not know if you can still buy them.
cheap hats that are still
I glued ribbon, pearls and
3 tiny flowers around the brim.
Do not know where it came from
or what it went with.
The backside of it is hollow.
I have already given you
How the dress looks depends on the lace
that you use.
This creamy dress was made from flat lace.
Behind the nightstand are 2 French doors
that I painted brown and then added some
white on them.
They are just there for added height in the room.
2 doors together to make a divider.
that used to be a gaudy gold color.
I painted it white cause it was hideous.
I have a total of 3 of these mirrors
but do not know where
I put the other 2.
The black table used to be an oak color until
I painted it. Beside the mask are 2 small picture
frames that are just sitting there with no
pics in them. I painted them white too.
The table and chairs used to be white until I
got a wild hair and decided to paint
They look shabby though.
Sam just sat the grocery bag into the chair
when her pearls broke!!
Do you see them on the floor by her feet!!
now must she must wear eye glasses.
She hasn't long been inside
I believe that you can still find them
if you keep your eyes open for them.
that all you do is cut them out of the fabric
and stitch them up.
I believe they are called 'Panels'.
Well on these panels are smaller aprons
All you do is
ribbons for the top
around the waist to tie it closed.
of the sofa and chairs.
to anchor the furniture.
white wire. It needs a little knob on top as well
as a cloth lining on the inside.
Until next time.
